Item Details

A gorgeous looking katakuchi sake cup with gold leaf attached to the inside.
An item that incorporates gold leaf, a famous traditional craft of Kanazawa. The shining gold leaf will make your sake look all the more splendid. Keeps the flavor of sake as is and is just perfect for chilled sake and Daiginjo-Shu. The simple, not-overly-large form also makes this recommended for use as a dressing container or as tableware. Tin is soft and not suitable to be worked on by machine and so each katakuchi cup is carefully made by hand by craftsmen. Gold leaf is then attached one at a time by the hands of Kanazawa artisans to complete the item.
Its luxurious looking appearance makes this recommended for a celebration or gift. Can hold approx. 150cc.
